Endpoint Detection and Response at Boston University: An EDUCAUSE Research Case Study

Abstract

Near the end of the 2010s, Boston University’s incumbent endpoint protection tool could no longer meet the institutional needs to defend against a rapidly evolving threat landscape. The university sought a solution that would be cloud-based, would provide new levels of visibility into threats, would provide wide coverage, and enable real-time responses. An endpoint detection and response (EDR) system fit the bill, resulting in a wide range of benefits and lessons for the university.
